Khatta Meetha Movie Review

The Film

Khatta Meetha is a satirical comedy film and is a remake of the 1989 Malayalam film, Vellanakalude Nadu, which was also directed by Priyadarshan. The film is neither a spoof on the political system nor a serious study of the rampant corruption in the infrastructure segment.

The Synopsis

Sachin Tichkule (Akshay Kumar) is an upcoming straight forward civil contractor trying in vain to make it big. His brother-in-law Trigun Fatak (Manoj Joshi working in the municipality is corrupt to the core. A bridge collapses because of faulty construction and Vishwas Rao (Tinu Anand) connected to

The Performances

Akshay Kumar does his best to make something of his role which is not properly etched. Trisha looks more of a glam-prop. Urvashi Sharma is good. Johny Lever is at his funniest best. Rajpal Yadav gives a wonderful performance. Makrand Despande, Manoj Joshi and Kulbhushan Kharbanda do well in their cameos. All others are just ok.

The Techniques

The loosely knit story, hotch-potch script and pitfall-filled screenplay make the film a pain you know where to watch. The opening is interesting, but it trickles down to yawning boredom. Cinematography is good and music is average. The song and dance sequences appear more as a hindrance than anything else.

The Verdict
Khatta Meetha meaning sour- sweet is more sour than sweet. Priyadarshan disappoints once again.
